Horizon Forbidden West got a surprise development update during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2021. While we didn't get to see any new footage, developer Guerrilla Games confirmed what we we've all been thinking: the game won't make it out this year after all.

However, we did get a defined release date. Horizon Forbidden West launches on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on the 18th February, 2022. Sony says that pre-orders will go live in just over a week, starting from the 2nd September.

But hey, at least you've got time to replay Horizon Zero Dawn before Aloy's next adventure arrives. The PS4 exclusive just got a PS5 update patch that allows the game to run at 60 frames-per-second on Sony's current-gen console. Lovely.
